I have focused my practice on Couples Counselling and Individuals struggling with Depression and Anxiety and relationship isssues. Using research-proven effective approaches, I offer caring, sensitive, and respectful counselling that is individually designed for prompt and positive results.
My extensive experience and training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help you to overcome Major Depression, Post-Partum Depression, Panic Attacks, OCD and excessive Worrying (GAD). You do not have to suffer. Additionally, I can help reduce the effects of trauma and PTSD symptoms so that you can move forward with your life and your relationships.
In my extensive experience as a marriage counsellor, I have helped couples, who are struggling to communicate respectfully, to dialogue about gridlocked issues and end daily bickering and bitter fighting. I can help couples who are devastated by infidelity and betrayal. I am also experienced in keeping your marriage strong as you transition to parenthood and/or parent a special needs child.
My special training in marriage counselling ( I am a Certified Gottman (Couples) Therapist, CGT) aims to help you and your partner have a long, happy marriage/ relationship. Counselling begins with a complete assessment in order to effectively target and solve your problems. You will learn skills to better communicate. I also have experience treating affairs with the Gottman Trust Revival Method. My relationship building approach can be used, as well, for individuals struggling with other adult family members such as teens, siblings or parents.
I welcome diversity and I'm happy to support persons of any race, culture, gender, income, and faith: I promote and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
Please call, text or email me and set up an initial consultation and together we can discuss how therapy may benefit you and a therapy approach that is best suited to your needs.
As well as weekday appointments, I also offer evening appointments. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) and a Certified Gottman Therapist (CGT) . I've been working full time as a counsellor in Richmond for over 16 years, have been happily married for over 35 years, and have 2 children.
- I am a Certified Gottman (Couples) Therapist, CGT, the method is based on the research of John Gottman.
